Wandsworth Riverside Quarter

The Wandsworth Riverside development provides a high-quality, landscaped Thames-side residential environment and integrates commercial and retail functions at ground level. Individual medium-rise blocks sit above a landscaped podium and two-storey basement. The site was previously a gas works and, to save cost and reduce environmental impact, the excavated contaminated ground has been remediated on site. Phase 4 is now in progress.

Features include:

  • Post-tensioned flat slabs minimise structural depth and material content.
  • Two-storey CFA secant piled basement wall.
  • Landscaped reinforced concrete transfer deck at ground level over two-storey basement car park.
  • In-ground services link tunnel between basement and energy centre.
  • Third tower phased such that the slab forms a crash deck over the energy centre with provision to become a floor slab in the future development.
